Total Film tries, as many have, to work the answer to who Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will be playing for Warner Bros./DC and they manage to get a bit more than most in the form of a hint. He quickly rules out Green Lantern/John Stewart and then starts dancing around hints with comments like "the Power of Superman" and being able to "throw down" but ends with the best hint of all: "Just say the word."
Is that word Shazam?
For a long time the Rock has expressed interest in playing Black Adam from the Captain Marvel wheelhouse, so I wouldn't want to rule that out, but would he rather play the hero and start a franchise?

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
